Does your hair fall out after a few chemotherapy sessions? You might choose to wear wigs. Well, this is an excuse to go shopping! You just might choose to wear fashionable turbans, hats or outlandish scarves. Or you just might choose to go without a head covering. This is another excuse to go shopping. Buy yourself some big hoop earrings (or the style you prefer). You have the perfect excuse to go against fashion and just do what makes you feel better!

Touch Of Cancer is a personal story and is written that way. Jean Charity, being a cancer survivor herself, the author gives us all a glimpse of what it's like being a woman with the disease. This book isn't only a personal story; it's a sensitive, touching and sometimes a lighthearted look at cancer from a woman's point of view.

The author delves into issues with a gentle understanding that only another cancer patient can do. She delves into issues such as hair loss, humiliation, sex, self-esteem and many more subjects that only a woman can understand. Ms. Charity also goes into the embarrassing moments of the side effects of medicines.

Touch Of Cancer has had an effect on this reviewer. It reminded me that no matter what problem you have, someone always has it worse. It also reminded me that no-one is alone no matter what the problem may be. It also reminded me that your family and your true friends will always be there for you!

I fully recommend Touch Of Cancer. In this must-read book the author let's you know that you aren't alone in your battle. Ms. Charity also reminds us to count your blessings.

Touch Of Cancer would be a good gift for not only the cancer patient but for anyone who knows someone who has the disease. It gives the friend or relative insight of what the cancer patient is going through.

Format: Paperback
Touch of cancer is the inspiring story of how one woman has coped with the onset of a disease that many fear.

Jean Charity, originally from Derby in the United Kingdom but now residing in Spain covers the subject in her own inimitable style. While many would find little to find humourous in such a potentially, serious disease, Jean has succeeded in striking a happy balance between the many funny situations she found herself in and the more serious aspects of her treatment.

One in three people living in the United Kingdom will statistically, at some point in their lives, contract cancer and therefore it is a subject which should be of interest to one and all.

Cancer does not recognize age, colour creed or sex. It attacks indiscriminately and its onset can strike fear into the bravest hearts.

Marvel therefore at how the author has managed to turn a potentially maudlin and depressing subject into an easy read but nevertheless heart warming and inspiring.

Format: Paperback
What a superb book this is. As it states on the rear cover, 1 in 3 of us will suffer from this disease at some point in our lives, even if we haven't been affected ourselves, most people know of someone, be it a friend, neighbour or colleague who has the disease. While a lot of books on the subject can be melancholy in nature, the author has succeeded in treating the subject with due respect but at the same time adding her fabulous sense of humour into it's pages,. You will have to buy a copy yourself, which I highly recommend, to see what I mean. The book mainly deals with the sometimes taboo subject of side effects from the actual treatment the patient receives, and while the author does not shirk from the realities, it is truly amazing how she has introduced several laugh out loud situations, making the book rather unique, and a worthwhile investment of anyone's £7.95. Buy it, you'll be glad you did.
